“In July of ’13, I told a story using alliterative sentences down each letter of the alphabet. It was a project I gave myself during an utterly long and lonely drive to Tennessee, which dovetailed nicely into a Daily Prompt.
It is the highest viewed post I have and comes up on the second page of the Google search of “alphabet alliteration.” (2018 note: Not anymore.) I’m going to do it again, this time telling a different story.
Last time, I told a story about a war between animals. This time… Well, just take a look.
‘Angel’s ardent and angling arm arcs around
I wrote that in 2014, so about a year after my initial Alphabet Alliteration post and, clearly, didn’t finish it. For this year’s NaBloPoMo, I’m going to revisit and finally put a cap on old posts that I began and, for whatever reason, abandoned.
As I was preparing for this post, I found an explanation that alliteration is used with the same consonants. Vowels need not apply. Would “Y” count as a consonant in this context? Also, it alliteration used with the same letters themselves? Or the same sounds? Is “Clocks clang kookily” alliteration? Same sound, different letters. Or
“Circles summon spirits.” Same sound, different letters. Or, conversely,
“Creating circles calls circuses.” Different sound, same letters.
I take it back. I know why I abandoned this post: I was plain over thinking it!
Happy November, everyone!
